Featuring both progressive and pop leanings, this solo album from Genesis keysman Tony Banks is a strong effort. There are some wonderful moments here, and no real throw away tracks.
Tony is joined on the album by Jayney Kilmek (Alphaville, Tangerine Dream), Daryl Struermer, Pino Palladino, Luis Jardim (Frankie Goes to Hollywood, ABC), Nik Kershaw, James Eller, Graham Broad, Vinnie Colaiuta (Frank Zappa, Allan Holdsworth), Martin Robertson, Andy Taylor (Duran Duran, Power Station) and Fish.
Angel Face: This number has a good Genesis/Marillion texture. Featuring the emotional and evocative vocal work of Fish, Angel Face is very strong. This song is about a lost love who was beautiful, but shallow. "I've got no memories just a photograph, I've got the best there is of you, You're just a devil with a pretty angel face."
Another Murder of a Day: A wonderful prog piece, this is the strongest track on the album. Combining the best of Marillion with some classic Genesis sounds, this is a superbly moody composition that contains many progressive rock stylings and changes. The track contains a break which is old Genesis at it its best. Fish's vocals are powerfully emotional, as always. A rollercoaster ride, this one alone is well worth the ticket price. At just over nine minutes, the term "epic" fits this cut rather well.
